Happy New Year. The new version brings MediathekView the update to 13.7.0, and yes there were again small bugs at MP3toCD. Have fun!

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

New are the application gThumb, GParted, Shotcut in version 21.02.27 and the latest version of MediathekView. Within Caja there is a new option 'Open as administrator'. In the English version the language guide of Firefox follows new in English.

For ArchivistaBox there are new manuals (a good part fits also for AVMultimedia).

English: https://archivista.ch/e2/help
German https://archivista.ch/d2/help

P.S: Currently at osdn.net no files over 2 GByte can be uploaded, avmultimedia.iso is not available there. At sourceforge.net this problem does not exist.

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

There is a new version for AVMultimedia with support for Apple file system, more information you can get here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/en/news/apples-welcome/

The same blog has a comparison of AVMultimedia to the Apple M1 (Mac Mini 2020). Conclusion: the M1 chip is not bad, but it cannot currently hold a candle to a fast Ryzen CPU (mobile or not).

One thing must be added here, however. Many Linux distributions are quite cumbersome compared to the Apple operating system. And even three years after the launch of AVMultimedia, I sometimes have the feeling that a simple Linux desktop like AVMultimedia unfortunately gets little attention. It still seems to me that Linux desktops are just not simple enough even in 2021. Therefore I invite all interested people to test AVMultimedia, because a Linux desktop in 2021 can't be simpler and yes, AVMultimedia doesn't need to shy away from a comparison to AppleOS. Not at all in terms of performance, and not in terms of simplicity either.

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

The AVMultimedia version suitable for ArchivistaBox 2021/VII is released. The changes are clear. With 'wakeonlan' the tool is ready to wake up AVMultimedia from deep sleep over the network, more here (at the end of the blog):

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

Updating the kernel (5.4.134 und 5.10.52) as a result of attack scenario via normal user privileges (CVE-2021-33909). The second vulnerability (CVE-2021-33910) does not affect AVMultimedia (as well as Devuan), since it only affects systems running SystemD.

Integration WLAN driver for D-Link DWA-182 Rev. D (kernel 5.10.x).

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

What I forgot, of course, the keyring problem from 4.9.22 is fixed that affects all Devuan packages/distributions. That is, with the current release, of course, any packages can be installed later. Unfortunately, this is not the case with all previous versions, because the key expired as of September 2022. So, update is highly recommended.

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

This year, work on AVMultimedia could only be progressed to a limited extent due to a stay abroad. A new version is now available with the 2023/XI release.

The programs LosslessCut, JDownloader2 and MediathekView have been updated. FreeTube is a new addition. Enjoy!

Please note: Currently osdn.net is not available for download. The problems with the hoster seem to have existed for some time.

Time will tell whether osdn.net will continue to be available for download. AVMultimedia can therefore currently be obtained via sourceforge.net/archivista (then select avmultimedia.iso)

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

The new release 2024/II contains tools to automatically optimize video files. These are vidopt1, vidopt2 and vidopt3. They can be used to reduce the size of downloaded video files by a factor of 2 to 10 in most cases. There is also the subtitleadjust program for modifying subtitle files. More information can be found here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/en/news/avmultimedia-2024-ii/

A tutorial (English subtitles) can be found here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/wp-content/up … pt_eng.mp4

The programs were developed especially for AVMultimedia, enjoy! Freetube has also been updated.

Since osdn.net has not been stable lately and it was impossible to install the latest version today, I looked for and found another way to host all relevant files for the AVMultimedia project externally. All files can now also be found at https://archivista.ch/cms/avmultimedia (redirected to infomaniak.ch). Files are no longer hosted at osdn.net. However, sourceforge.net will of course be retained.

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

It is with great gratitude that I can announce AVMultimedia 2024/III based on Devuan Daedalus. Frankly speaking, sometimes I didn't believe that I would ever finish this project. I only managed to do it within a reasonable time thanks to the great help in the Devuan IRC channel, thank you very much.

The new release doesn't offer a huge number of new features, but the software is simply up to date. I am also pleased that I will have SteamDeck on board for the next few years. More information about the new release can be found here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/en/news/avmul … -2024-iii/

The ISO files currently have the suffix 2024. The ISO files can be obtained directly from https://archivista.ch/cms/avmulti24.iso or https://archivista.ch/cms/avmini24.iso. Alternatively, https://sourceforge.net/project/archivista is too available.

Have fun!

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

Hallo,
Der Einfachheit halber  melde ich mich diesmal auf Deutsch. Ich kannte Ihre Produkte bisher nicht und habe also die Seite archivista.ch besucht. Nur, hinterher bin ich kaum schlauer als vorher. Um was handelt es sich?

Um ein (bzw. mehrere) Gerät(e), die nicht sagende (auf jedem Fall nicht näher klärende) Namen trägt/tragen,

oder um eine Software?

Diese Diskussion ist schon seeeehr lang, aber, zumindest nehme ich an, für englischsprachige Leute noch überschaubar. Viele auf den englischsprachige Foren sind aber nicht so fix in der Sprache, die sich rühmt die Weltsprache zu sein (die Deutschen sind vor 40 J., als unser Sohn geboren wurde, den Weg gegangen, Englisch anstatt Latein als Pflicht zu nehmen! Aber überall in Diskussionsforen ausser hier, drängen sie inzwischen darauf, dass deutschsprachige Unterforen entstehen!). Diese Diskussion ist inzwischen sehr alt.

Kann man fragen: um was dreht es sich eigentlich? Gerät / Software? Falls Software opensource oder nicht ?  Was tut die Software, das neue Gerät? Gibt es eine Liste der Abkürzungen, die den Zweck jeder verdeutlich, was ist DMS, MRP usw.? Welche Voraussetzungen minimal / empfohlen (denn die Anderen können ja weiterhin wohl das Thema ignorieren, es sei denn sie suchen selbst etwas neues)...

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

@OUI: What is AVMultimedia and how does it relate to our homepage and the ArchivistaBox?

AVMultimedia is an open source Linux desktop that is freely available. That is why all announcements about AVmultimedia are made here in this forum.

The ArchivistaBox is a ready-to-use hardware box (Appliance), which contains the AVMultimedia desktop, but also a comprehensive web-based document management system (DMS, or ArchivistaDMS), a web-based server for virtualization (ArchivistaVM) and the ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning, mainly adapted to Swiss conditions). The ArchivistaDMS and ArchivistaERP solutions can be freely tested in our cloud (ArchivistaCloud).

Once again in one sentence: AVMultimedia = Open Source Linux Desktop, ArchivistaBox = commercial web based solutions (DMS/ERP/Virtualization) with hardware

P.S: Please, don't post in (badly auto translated) German, this forum is in English.

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

AVMultimedia is now supplied with all SANE drivers and Tesseract text recognition. Simple-Scan and the specially developed scantopdf tool are available on the AVMultimedia desktop for scanning work. More information can be found here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/en/news/scanning-and-more

Furthermore, Ungoogled Chromium has been updated (currently only included in AVMultimedia) and the rtl88 WLAN drivers from Realtek have been reactivated (as in previous versions).

There is another new ISO. In order for the firewall ufw to run, some parameters had to be changed in the kernel. With this release, uwf is available directly on AVMultimedia.

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

On older computers/notebooks with Intel chips, there may be no drivers for SOF (Sounds Open Firmware). There are new menu items for this so that these devices can also play sound (noSOF option). Furthermore, the shutdown or the. Restart has been refined by delegating the restart to Job 1 (see /init2).

Re: Fastest and newest AVMultimedia ever...

Version 2024/VI: Record screenshots and create PDF files

Ctrl+PrintScreen: Screen shots are taken every 5 seconds. This data is processed in the background with tesseract to cerate searchable PDF files. To stop recording: Shift+Ctrl+PrntScreen. Capt2PDF works on the local desktop and the user retains control of all the data.

More information about it you can find here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/en/news/10401-2/

And the best is, this tool works under any linux desktop, just get it from here:

https://archivista.ch/cms/wp-content/up … pt2pdf.zip

Side note about 2024/VI: Firefox was updated to version 126. Enjoy!
